Samuel Taylor Coleridge's "This Lime-Tree Bower My Prison" contains numerous characteristics that illustrate the concept of discovery. The first line, "Well, they are gone, and here I must remain," illustrates the first example of discovery. The speaker begins the poem by openly admitting that he (gender assumed for clarity) has realized that his situation "is what it is." This illustrates discovery because the speaker seems to have just come to this realization. In the next stanza, the poet opens with another adverb ("well" begins the first stanza). The use of these adverbs illustrates information about time, manner, and certainty. The use of the word "now," in this stanza, compounds the idea that the speaker is present in the moment. He is sharing his thoughts with the reader. By doing this, the poet is illustrating the state of discovery the speaker is present in. Another example of discovery happens in the third stanza: "A delight / Comes sudden on my heart." This example shows another moment where the speaker come to discover something more about the situation he is in. Finally, the poet's use of exclamation marks throughout the poem illustrates discovery. The speaker's excitement about all of the new discoveries explodes through his dialogue. He cannot contain himself, and all of the exclamation marks offer the proof that he cannot contain his emotions.
